    Sega was also name dropped in the 1st episode of Solar Opposites, Justin Roiland's other show on Hulu. And I think someone was playing something that looked like a Sega Saturn.

    I noticed that the SEGA font was used in Static-X's new music video

    For a brief moment at 1:38

    This could be a bit of a stretch, but there's a reference to an RPG game in the manga Komi Can't Communicate called "PGO" (at least that's what it's called in the bootleg translation I'm reading)

    I got the impression that PGO could stand for "Phantasy Galaxy Online"

    If you wanted to celebrate the existence of deodorant, this special range of Lynx Africa has you covered. There's an acknowledgement of the PlayStation launch in the UK and Ireland - we don't run a "Sony Retro" but if we did, we'd want to document the full range.

    So almost a good thing the Saturn didn't get off the ground.

    In a more recent Adventure Time episode, Finn and Jake are playing a pretty obvious Phantasy Star Parody. It even makes fun of the game's notorious grind.

    Funny, I don't remember actively grinding that much in classic Phantasy Star games other than maybe to get money for new equipment. Grinding sounds more like Final Fantasy.

    (The very legendary and talented) Kendrick Lamar referred to owning the SEGA Genesis in his iconic Nosetalgia feature with Pusha T.

    Season 2 Episode 9 of the anime Silver Spoon has a Puyo reference pretty early into the episode.

    Or is he promoting Sega VR??


    p.s. I haven't watched an episode of Power Rangers in 25 years. It's janky as all hell.
